Ocracoke is located on the southern tip of North Carolina’s famed Outer Banks.  Our relatively small 16 mile Island initially looks expansive due to its miles and miles of pristine beaches.  We’re accessible from the mainland only by private plane, private boat, or one of three state-run ferries from Hatteras Village, Cedar Island or Swan Quarter.

Most of the Island is owned by the Cape Hatteras National Seashore and is maintained by the National Park Service.  This pristine environment provides the perfect haven for water adventurers, as well as a peaceful, safe, relaxing spot to soak in the sun.

From the Pony Pens to the Springer’s Point Nature Preserve and its collection of live oaks and native oyster beds, natural beauty surrounds you… there are unlimited opportunities for sunning, swimming, fishing, boating, kayaking, and surfing.

Because of the proximity to the Gulf Stream, our temperate weather also welcomes visitors the rest of the year. World-class shelling, biking, bird-watching and kayaking are just a few of the activities that await “off-season” guests.

The “Village” is at the southern tip of Ocracoke. It offers just the right amount of shops, restaurants, fishing opportunities, surfing, and biking rentals to keep most vacationers well occupied throughout the vacation season. Music, good cold drinks, just-caught seafood, and lots of fun—this is our home.

If you’re looking for one of the truly great places to stay on Ocracoke Island, look no further than the Pony Island Motel.
